Allegheny County Republican Pushes Natural Gas-Fueled Buses, In Campaign Spot

We’ve found another example of natural gas making its way into a political campaign. This time, it’s a factor in the race for Allegheny County Executive.

Republican D. Raja promises to implement natural gas-fueled buses in this commercial, which we first spotted over at Early Returns.

    I submitted a question about the “produced water” or waste water that comes back up with the gas.
    Can this fracked water be filtered, distilled, or treated so it can be made safe for human consumption?
    It is my understanding that once you mix alcohol, benzene, xylene, ester, glycerine’s with water, you can’t separate them by any means.  It is what is known as anisotropic mixtures, which can’t be separated by any known means, chlorination, activated charcoal filters.  And we are talking about 4 million gallons of water each time a well is fracked.  So how is this safe, clean and economical?
